WE REVIVE HISTORIC TREASURES​​

Komaru Enterprises LLC is a Brooklyn-based boutique developer specializing in the design, preservation, restoration and conversion of exceptional Historic Landmark buildings into unique dwelling experiences.  

 

Historic renovation is not just about restoring a facade to comply with Landmark Commission rules. The real challenge is to gracefully draw out the beautiful old to merge with the striking new - throughout the building.

We push the borderline of preservation and modern living with sensitivity and innovation to maximize the hidden potential of a building. We aim to convey a new message, a new concept - something not seen anywhere else in Brooklyn. 

 
 
 

OUR MISSION

As cookie-cutter high-rises continue to fill every empty lot, there is increasing demand for the classic Brooklyn way-of life, that associated with historic neighborhoods. 

 

Brooklyn is rich with iconic historic architecture. If these buildings fall into the wrong developer's hands, that richness can be lost forever. 

 

We realize the tremendous potential in restoration/ conversion of ageless and rare properties into condominium masterpieces.

 

We also believe that the benefit from our projects should be not only to increase property value for new owners and investors, but also to enrich the character of the neighborhood.  We believe a project done with integrity and style is to everyone's benefit.

Kenya Keppel remembered how her friends on the block begged to play in “the Castle,” as they called her house. The three-story Romanesque Revival brick residence certainly stood out on Dean Street in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, for its slate-shingled turret.

Curbed commenters were dubious about the ability of a Crown Heights townhouse—even a freestanding one with an awesome turret—in need of a gut renovation to fetch more than $1 million, but times are clearly changing, and 1372 Dean Street is already in contract for $1.32 million.
